Table Column Widths are being reset when editing the page

If I want to have a table with either a lot of columns or just a few wide columns I can make the table scrollable and larger than the screen by dragging certain columns to be very wide and back to thinner afterwards (already a very annoying workaround). When I publish the page this works, but after someone edits the page again, the table columns are being reset to just 1/x of the screen size.

I just want to make a table for x users to note down some information daily, putting either the users as columns or the days and creating a table per week, the columns just get way to thin and the text becomes harder to read.

 

Is there any way around this? I also thought about creating a second header row in the middle of the table, to split the columns in two, but this is also no longer possible.

If you have the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app installed for your instance, you may try the Table Transformer macro and its changing column width feature.

Here is an example with screenshots - just wrap your table in the Table Transformer macro and type in a custom SQL query.

Hi @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ , unfortunately, we don't have that app installed and I'm not sure that it's worth it for such a basic feature that I hope will get fixed/added by confluence in the near future.

Yes this is a sad state of affairs indeed. But I have published a work-around here that is at least workable until Confluence is fixed with this most basic table functionality:

Do we have a Jira-Ticket for this bug? If yes, could someone post the link please. Thanks!
